Triumph Motorcycles India started taking pre-orders for the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400x, two of the company's forthcoming models in India. These motorcycles were introduced in London, UK, and will be produced by Bajaj Auto in Maharashtra, India. Both items are shown on the company's India website, where prospective customers may reserve either motorbike for the low, low price of Rs 2,000. The two bikes have the same 398cc liquid-cooled engine, which produces 39.5bhp at 8000rpm and 37.5Nm of torque at 6500rpm. It has a six-speed gearbox. Triumph's Speed 400 and Scrambler 400X will debut in our market on July 5. Market predictions place the Speed 400's price at roughly Rs 3 Lakh, while the Scrambler 400X might ask for a little more. Let's have a look at the motorcycles' characteristics, stats, and design as they are about to hit our market.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400 X: Design and Dimensions
The new bikes are appealing to the eye. The Speed Twin 900 and the Speed 400 share certain visual cues, although the latter looks much more modern and fresh. However, the Scrambler 400X doesn't seem like a real scrambler while sharing the same suspension travel as the Speed 400. The Scrambler 400X has a revised exhaust system, dual-purpose tyres, and split seats.
In terms of overall dimensions, the two bikes are noticeably different from one another. The wheelbase of the Scrambler 400X is 1,418mm, making it somewhat longer than that of the Speed 400 at 1,377mm. The height of the seats also varies. The Scrambler 400X stands above the Speed 400 by 35mm, at 835mm compared to 790mm.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400 X: Engine & Gearbox
These two motorcycles are powered by a brand new single-cylinder motor that Triumph calls the TR-series engine. It's a 398cc DOHC engine, and liquid cooling system. The Triumph's power and torque figures are similar to those of the KTM 390 series, coming in at 39.5bhp at 8000rpm and 37.5Nm at 6500rpm, respectively, however the British bikes achieve their peak output earlier in the rev range. The Triumphs, like the KTMs, come with a 6-speed gearbox.
Triumph Speed 400, Scrambler 400 X: Features and India Launch
Both motorcycles come standard with features such as all-LED lighting, ride-by-wire, switchable traction control, dual-channel ABS, an immobiliser, an assist clutch, a USB Type-C charging outlet, and semi-digital instrument clusters. Both motorcycle features a large analogue tachometer and a tiny LCD screen. The panel displays a digital tachometer, a gear position indication, trip information, and a fuel gauge.
Seeing the heated grip symbol there is fascinating; maybe the British manufacturer will offer it as an add-on. Scrambler owners have the option of switching to an off-road mode for the vehicle's dual-channel ABS. Both motorcycles will debut on the Indian market on July 5, with deliveries beginning in August.
